From Elois: 

Attendees will need a USB headset (and an Internet connection) to utilize the VoIP feature. We recommend that all attendees have headsets with microphones available, and have a current version of Flash player installed.

Here are a few tips we’ve discovered that you can pass onto committee members:

1.            Adobe Connect has recently updated their software. When you log-in, you may notice a screen asking you to install the add-in. If you click “yes,” the update will install in about 20-30 seconds. You may need to complete the audio setup wizard after installing the add-in.

2.            Use Firefox, if possible -- Internet Explorer and Chrome seem to have some issues.

3.            Make certain you have an updated version of Flash.

4.            Only use PDF or PPT files.

5.            You will need a headset for VoIP. If you are using a machine with a built-in microphone, you will need to disable the built-in microphone and enable the microphone on your headset (a USB headset is best).

6.            Once you enter Adobe Connect (you will sign in as a guest -- so no log-in is needed), you will need to click on the speaker and microphone icons to activate -- both need to be GREEN.

7.            Please allow a few minutes to get in and test your audio, etc. before the start time.

8.            To test audio, click on ‘Meeting’ in upper left corner. Choose the audio set-up wizard. Click through every step, making sure the dropdown is set to your USB headset, and click through to the very last screen. IMPORTANT: You must click all the way through the audio wizard in order to save your selections.

From Elois Sharpe:

Attendees will need a USB headset (and an Internet connection) to utilize the VoIP feature. We recommend that all attendees have headsets with microphones available, and have a current version of Flash player installed.

If attendees have PowerPoint presentations or PDF documents, please send them to me ahead of time so I can upload them.

If you’d like to record the meeting, all presenters will need to submit a signed agreement. Please contact me for this agreement. As meeting host, you will be responsible for starting and ending the recording during the session.

All,

Thank you for an excellent meeting, and again, apologies for getting a late start.  Draft minutes are attached.  Two things to note... 1) all action items are in italics, and 2) I added a post meeting note about the Midwinter session (Sunday, from 1-2 pm, location TBD).  Elois looked at everyone's commitments and scheduled around them.  Finally, special thanks to Chase for volunteering to create the survey and pull info for the distribution lists!

Best, Penny
